The ‘Spiritual Wounds’ of the Irish Civil War

Venue: Courthouse

After the end of the Irish Civil War in 1923 the received wisdom is that the participants chose to draw a veil of silence over the conflict. Queen’s University academic Siobhra Aiken’s book Spiritual Wounds: Trauma, Testimony and the Irish Civil War challenges the widespread belief that the Irish Civil War (1922–23) was followed by a ‘traumatic silence’ by uncovering an archive of previously overlooked testimonies by pro- and anti-treaty men and women.
